I am really interested in children's experiences are of living in a cohousing community. Are there any children / young people who would be able to gather both numbers and quotes? These are the two questions: 1. What do you like about living in this cohousing community? 2. What do you dislike about living in cohousing community? I also need to know the sex and age of the respondent. I also need to know how many children (count any 0 to 18 year olds living at home) live in the cohousing community. With that information we might learn that girls find different things more important than boys, that younger children might find different things important than teenagers. If you do a survey it's important to explain that everyone is free to choose whether or not they want to participate. However, it would be good if about 40% (a bit less than half of all children) answer the two questions. The survey is done to help adults understand what children want & need. If lots of children respond, the adults will know it's not just their own child asking for something. I promise I will only share "patterns". What I mean by patterns is that I take out names and sort the answers. I might have a pile of responses about the common house, or sharing stuff or rules. Once there is a pile of opinions about the same thing, than I will report that back. If only one child out of 40 in the whole survey in different cohousing communities says something about the food, or a a neighbour, I'll take that out. I don't want the readers to be able to find out who wrote what. So I'll change the wording (called "editing") to make sure children get heard and not seen. If I get an adequate response by email, I will post the results! Hans Tilstra Melbourne Australia tilstra [at] smartchat.net.au PS I'm a teacher
